"Living Life"

STARTING LIFE OUT AS A COVERS BAND CALLED THE JUDGES OF JELLYWRESTLING,
LIVING LIFE IN ANIMATION JUST FELL INTO PLACE. GUITARIST DANIEL MILLER CHATS
TO BEN PREECE.
Hailing from Rockhampton, Living Life In Animation may have originated as a covers band but
as opportunity presented itself, the three-piece starting incorporating their own tunes to their
sets.
“As a covers band we were known as The Judges of Jellywrestling, playing rocked-up 80s
songs like ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go Go’, ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ and the like,” Miller
explains. “We would play the standard four to five hours plus other standard drunken pub
anthems, travelling all over Australia playing mainly to backpackers – so a lot of Muse, Placebo
and Coldplay. We started incorporating our own material into the nights – we found it really
funny watching people screaming out the chorus to ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and then trying to
recognise our song. We decided to just do originals as LLIA because people would come and
see us and ask for Pearl Jam or Don McLean – so it's like The Judges are covers and Living
Life is our own stuff.”
As the band began to play their own material, they simultaneously began to receive
opportunities around town in the form of playing support to a few larger luminaries.
“The supports were kind of like a chain reaction thing,” Miller reveals. “We had confirmed the
Diana Anaid shows and started to aggressively advertise. Then the venues were like ‘Hey, next
month British India will be here, you boys wanna play?’ and so it has kind of snowballed from
there.”

From there, an EP was recorded, touring ensued and already the band have started work on
the debut full-length. But other than that, their aspirations are much like any band’s.
“We want to the type of band where your at a party and people are fighting over the jukebox and
a Living Life In Animation song comes on and everybody pulls the about-to-have-an-orgasm
face and mouths ‘Ooohhh fuck yeah!’.”

Bio

After playing the covers circuit for what seemed an eternity , L.L.I.A thought it was time to start getting creative and started writing songs
And after a month of writing and recording L.L.I.A’s first Selftitled Ep. was born, and eclectic mix of Rock , Pop and Metal, each Song is threaded with an impeccable Pop sensibility, However maintaining and honesty and sincerety to their craft, Ranging from melancholy to hopeful to HELLYEAH!!!!! The songs are a reflection of what happing around us.

Released on the there own independent Label D.n.L Records in 2005 L.L.I.A received modest airplay on both commercial and community stations and performing festivals that included an array of local magnates
“If anyone thought mainstream Rock went out of style then they need to listen to Living Life in Animation” (Iva Esteves Concert promoter)
2008 saw a year of extensive touring opening for acts like British India, Diana Anaid, Melodyssey, The Butterfly Effect, Epidemic….Over. Playing to appreciative audiences night after night
It gives us an opportunity to grow and mature naturally, we love playing to crowds and we love our music. We are not out to prove anything we are simply and sincerely in it for the music and always have been.

It is quintessentially genuine the intergraded expressions of 3 creatively charged minds whose dynamic interaction makes for some of the most contrastive music either side of the Pacific.
